Microsoft Flight Simulator Airfield Design
Declaration: Alan Blencowe does not have any financial interests in any payware companies or sites and apart from FSX and FenceBuilderPro, all scenery projects are developed totally free of reliance on payware. Models created by Alan Blencowe with freeware can be used in freeware projects with permission.
It seems to me that all the chat sites are talking a language that beginners don't understand or they tell me "delete the nul inf", "flip the file" or "register the BGL". Why can't they talk in simple English? This site will be introducing you to your own scenery design.
Alan is a semi retired Manual Arts teacher and started
his first primitive modelling for FS2002 coached by Steve James and the
late Ian Thatcher. He prefers modelling to flying but does a bit
of both. He now coaches beginning modellers all over the world
and he would love to coach you. He is happy to supply models and
textures for freeware projects to start you on your own model library.
Before you change anything, you need to know what makes it tick
The simulator you bought is the retail version and you first have to upgrade it and add software that talks to it
Analogue Drive? Clean and defrag monthly! Digital Drive? Clean but never defrag!
Downloading and installing scenery is the simplest thing to start with
The retail version you bought has had two upgrades
There are two versions - one for FS9 and one for FSX
If you want to know anything these guys know everything. Remember scenery you buy is not always better than scenery that is free!
These little but important programmes synchronise your development software to the simulator
These resources designed by the sleepless multitude and are mostly freeware.
